LMS is played under the normal laws of cricket but there are a few extra rules that add to the excitement of the game:
Batsman retire at 50 but can come back in if the other wickets are lost.
When the seventh wicket falls the last man stands and bats alone but can only score 2s. 4s and 6s.
Five ball overs with a maximum of 6 balls per over for overs 1 to 19. The first wide is 1 and an extra ball. After that all wides/no balls are 3 runs. In the final over 5 legitimate balls must be bowled.
If a player hits the Last ball of the innings for 6 it is worth 12 - referred to as a HOME RUN
Four overs per bowler
There''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s a double play whereby if the batsman is caught then the non-striker can also be run out.
